Happy Veg New Year!


Veggie New Year

Happy New Year, Everyone! May 2013 bring you Health, Peace, and Happiness!

Today, I’m celebrating my one year anniversary as a plant-based vegan. I am so grateful to the people whom have shared this journey with me! Many of them you can meet on this blog. These people have truly inspired and supported me along the way!  What an incredible year it has been! Yes, there’s also been sorrow and obstacles along the way, but that pales in comparison to what I have learned and experienced this year!


Truly, I’m so Thankful to each person who has shared their unique story with me! I plan to continue these interviews and I’m looking forward to hearing more stories! Since it’s New Years Day, this is also a good time to make a determination to make at least one positive change in your life. If you’re not fully on board with the idea of going vegan, then this article might provide further inspiration. Just click on the title below:

Top 10 Reasons to Go Vegan in the New Year

Truly going vegan is the best thing you could do for yourself, for the earth, and for the animals! I often tell my friends, with a big grin on my face, that I’m the happiest vegan you’ll ever meet! It has the power to transform your life in so many unbelievable ways!

Embrace new possibilities!

Sure there might be people in your life who are not going to understand it, nor like your new choice. A few people might even reject you for it…and they could very well be in your own family. I’d almost compare it to coming out of the closet and telling your family that you’re gay. However, I’d rather be rejected for making choices that I know are true to my heart and spirit than having to live up to someone else’s ideals. Further, knowing that I am benefitting my own health, the health of the planet, as well as not harming any living being is also of great importance to me! Some people are going to have “funny” reactions to your new dietary choice, but you don’t need to take that on! Just do what feels right to you! LET GO! You don’t need these people’s approval! People who truly care about you are going to be supportive and kind!

Wishing  you a year full of health & goodness! All the Best for 2013, Nina
